    I purchased two iPhone 5's from Verizon via pre-order and received them ok. I would like to purchase AppleCare+ for both phones but I can't figure out how to purchase it on Apple's site :confused: I don't see any "add to cart" options

    Once you receive them you have to go to the Apple store and have the genius inspect it to make sure it's not damaged.

    You don't have to go to a Apple store they say as long as ones not 50 miles but my closest one is 45 miles away they let me buy it over the phone today

    My nearest apple store is 2.5+ hours away.

    I just walked into my AT&T store, and got applecare+right there.
    Showed up instantly when I checked my serial number on Apples service site.

    I bought an iPhone 5 yesterday at my local AT&T store and Apple let me purchase AppleCare+ over the phone with them today.

    I also thought I would have to make the hour drive to my closest Apple Store, but on a whim I called them up and they were able to do it over the phone. I have a Verizon iPhone 5. Took 5 minutes and am really glad I didn't have to make the trip!

    After getting a service replaced phone all I had to do was call AppleCare and added it to the iPhone.

    Best to just purchase it on the spot when you first buy the phone, either online or in-store.

    Register both iPhones at Apple.com and you should be able to buy it then, extending the regular buyer warranty.
